Director Guy Ritchie (Aladdin) returns to his adrenalized gangster based roots (Snatch, RockNRolla) with The Gentleman. The feature centers on Mickey (Matthew McConaughey), an American expat who heads a money making marijuana empire in London. When rumors surface that he may be selling off his business, a plethora of predators attempt to muscle in on his territory.
Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant, Michelle Dockery, Henry Golding, and Charlie Hunnam (who worked with Ritchie in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) are just several of the A-list talent featured in the ensemble.

The Gentlemen, which is also penned and produced by Ritchie, hits theaters January 24.
